Summer Teen Touring Show

Twain by the Tale

Based on the works Mark Twain. Written by Dennis Snee, Music by Gregg Saeger

Directed by Derrick Buschmann

In this two act revue of Mark Twain Stories, Sketches, and Monologues, the wit and timeless perceptions of America's greatest humorist are celebrated. Twain's talent for documenting the chronic and comic weaknesses of human nature is the focus of this easily stageable show. 

For this production, we are looking for High School Students (students who were enrolled in high school during the 2020-2021 academic year) to form the inaugural year of the Center Theatre Thespeteen Travelling Summer Troupe. You will begin rehearsals in June and then take the show on the road. Performances will be on weekend afternoons between July 17th and August 15th. We anticipate 6 or more outdoor performances taking place in Greenville, Monson, Dover-Foxcroft, Milo/Brownville, and Dexter.  But you don't have to be available for every performance.

Given the extended nature of the schedule and the need for travel, the Center Theatre will be paying a stipend of $50 per performance to each teen involved. We will also provide food at the performances for actors and crew and if an actor is able to drive to a performance they will get reimbursed for mileage. 

Excited yet? WE ARE!! If you want to become involved, email pmyers@centertheatre.org or call the Theatre at (207)564-8943.
